Let's face it. There is a certain faction of the Jewish community that will never, ever, ever, ever, ever accept Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison as Democratic National Committee Chair, no matter what he does, or how he does it.
On Monday Stephen Bittel sent out an email to Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee members saying activists have encouraged him to run for FDP chair. Well, being the knight in shining armor a la Donald Trump, he is heeding their call.
Yes, you read that correctly.
No, Florida Democrats are not going to have a repeat of 2013. As you may recall, strings were pulled, arms were twisted, people were bought off in 2013 to get Allison Tant in as Florida Democratic Party chair.
That's how the headlines will read in 2018 if Sen. Bill Nelson doesn't stop playing around in the Florida Democratic Party chair race.
OK, I get it. Some Jewish people are upset with Dwight Bullard because he traveled with the Dream Defenders to Israel and their tour guide had ties to a terrorist organization.
Dan Gelber and Susanna Randolph Are Inelligible; Will Debbie Wasserman Schultz Stick Her Nose in Again?
Let's face it, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a history of interfering in party politics. She put her thumb on the scale in two races that we know of.
Mrs. Buttinsky Wasserman Schultz tipped the scales in favor of Allison Tant in 2013, sending the Florida Democratic Party to wander the desert since. The party has been beaten like it stole something in every race that mattered. It is totally irrelevant at this point.
Despite the Florida Democratic Party providing President Barack Obama with a list of Democratic legislative candidates that included Lisa Montelione running for House District 63, the Hillsborough County Democratic Black Caucus said not so fast.
The St. Petersburg branch of the NAACP staged a debate this past Saturday to allow black residents to familiarize themselves with the candidates in newly drawn Congressional District 13, and to allow the candidates to familiarize themselves with the residents and the issues that concern them.
Good Grief! I thought after 2014, black folks would have seen the last of the snake Chain Gang Charlie Crist slithering through our churches, slobbering on our kids and pretending to be Frederick Douglass reincarnated.
